I just made 12 wins (my first!) with this deck. Needless to say, 3 fireballs are very handy when it comes to clearing huge minions or nuking the face. Also, 3 kodos made it easy to counter opponent's mini minions and keep the board clean. The mirror entity secret synergizes well with Ethereal Arcanist during late games and helped me won a couple of games. (i once copied a Tirion! which is his second btw!). The most useless card would be the giant but the other 2 cards i was offered were worse... so.... meh... The 2 defeats were against another mage(he had lots of flamestrikes T_T ), and a rogue(he played very well).
i also attached the rewards that came along....gd luck!
back again, now with a rush mage, the last card that doesn't show in the image is the sea giant.pretty weird deck,elven archers and the sea giant mvps, almost never had to use my flamestrikes. first time 12 with mage strangely, still haven't hit the 12 with hunter and warlock, i'm gonna try for those in the next days. the prizes were pretty low quality unfortunately.
got 12 wins with this mage deck, some crap cards , pretty weird how i got to 12 with this, 3 or 4 games were won unfairly with the pyro. the arcane explosions were strangely very good with the archmage. the black knight made the difference in 2 games also. the rewards were weak sauce.
YES! Finally did it again! Didn't expect this draft to be a 12 win deck (since it's short on 2 drops) but it just traded so well. I'm also including the draft in case people are interested in my draft decisions.
Been playing the game for less than a month, and after playing the classes to unlock all of the basic cards, I've been playing arena as my method to get rewards (and constructed only to complete quests). I'm a consistent 5-6 win player with a decent draft, but this is the first one where I felt like I had a pretty good shot despite no Truesilvers...
Started 3-0, lost one to a Druid deck where I had a terrible early draw and just couldn't get anything going and had nothing to remove his late game Ironbark. Got to 6-1 before losing my second one to a Rogue deck that had a great early game against my poor early game... then won the next 6 quite easily with only a minor scare against a quick starting Hunter deck that I was able to recover against and clear the table mid game and establish board control for win 10.
Only two difficult decisions I had in my draft were Hogger vs Illidan for my first Legendary (before I knew a Tirion was coming 3 picks later), but went with Hogger because creating a never ending stream of taunts was key in at least 3 or 4 games, and Youthful Brewmaster over a second Silver Hand Knight in the middle of the draft when my curve was pretty weak on the low end, which ended up being the right pick. My curve was pretty solid overall, maybe a little weak in 2 and 4 drops, but really strong in 4 cost spells to clear the board to carry me into a good position in the late game.
Went 12-1 with this priest deck. I followed Icy Vein's example of a control deck mana curve and the games went really smoothly -- with most of them ending with 30 health. During the drafting process, I passed on a third Holy Nova and at around 14 picks I had to start focusing on early game picks.
Oops... I just did it again! Twice this week! 12-2 with warlock. Warlock is my best class so far in arena with a 75% win rate. Had a tough start going 2-2 but the deck pulled through it and went 12. This is one of the most aggro decks I've ever drafted.
Here is the draft. Any questions? Feel free to PM me.
Twelve win Hunter! Gotta admit, the class is really growing on me (was one of my favorites back in beta, before the whole Unleash fiasco). Rewards were 460 gold and 2 packs, one of which contained Nat Pagle.
